I've got a Windows 2008r2 server with IIS which is hosting a wordpress site. However, I can't get installations of plugins to work with FTP. This is what I've done:
- I've set up a FTP site in IIS which has it's root in the
- I've created a user which has the "Full Access" priviledge on the entire wordpress directory.
- When I log in using a ftp program or browser, it works fine, I can browse the wordpress dirs, upload files etc.
But when I try to install a plugin, it takes a long time, and then errors out with "Unable to locate WordPress Content directory (wp-content).". Googling suggests this would be because the ftp root is not in the same directory as the
wp-content dir, but it is. It does not seem to be a credential problem either, because giving wrong password/username/hostname gives an error quickly. I can also see the ftp session in the IIS manager.
What do I need to do?
